Adding Elizabeth Bishop's reference to Lucky Strikes to the Wikipedia page about the cigarettes

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the reference to Lucky Strike cigarettes in Elizabeth Bishop's poem "At the Fishhouses" and how it was not included in the list of cultural references to the cigarette brand on the Wikipedia page about it (which include its roles in the "Mad Men" TV series and in the movie "Beverly Hills Cop"). When I also mentioned that I had never edited a Wikipedia page, I admit I was hoping somebody would do it for me, but in class, a student told me that it looks easy to sign up, so this morning I did, and I added the reference to the Lucky Strike page.
